The reason distributed/decentralized things fail isn't because of the BS reasons this article gives. In my opinion it is about - Usability: open source UI and UX sucks for the most part... build an amazing UI and user experience and users will come.

- Do NOT expect people to download and setup software and run nodes... Can you build it in the universal piece of software that everybody has today.. AKA browser ? I think whoever nails these challenges will win.

- I think somebody (maybe me) should build such a 'universal browser' that allows all of these decentralized things to happen. I was thinking Brave would be that browser.. but I'm not sure..
